In a series of tweets and later speaking to reporters, Owaisi said that back in 2013, he had advised the government to open diplomatic channels with the Taliban to secure our strategic interests but he was scoffed at and criticised.
“In 2019, I reiterated my concerns regarding the unavoidable truth about Afghanistan. While Pakistan, US and Taliban were holding talks in Moscow, @PMOIndia was counting the number of times he hugged Trump. We still don’t know what government’s Afghanistan policy is,” tweeted Owaisi.

He further tweeted that: “We have made three billion dollars ($3 billion) investments in Afghanistan. But no one paid heed and now what’ll the government do? This isn’t something that’s out of the blue. As usual Narendra Modiji’s government seems to be out of its depth. It starts acting only when a crisis is at the doorstep,” Owaisi said.

Stating that all the international security experts had said that India should have held dialogue with the Taliban, he said the Modi-government has completely failed to read what is happening in the last seven years.
Bhagwat’s statement completely bogus:
Owaisi reacted sharply to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement that if dependence on China increases, we will have to bow before it. “Mohan Bhagwat’s statement is completely bogus. What is he talking about when the Chinese army is sitting in Gogra, Hot Springs, Demchok and Depsang which is Indian territory. Prime Minister Narendra Modi who ideologically belongs to the RSS is afraid even to use the word China. If Mohan Bhagwat is a true nationalist, let him say that the Chinese army is sitting in Indian territory. Our Indian army is not able to control those areas which are Indian territory. While PM Modi is maintaining silence, what is Mohan Bhagwat talking?” he asked.
